Tips for Planting Herbs

Mint planted in barrels - Prevent mint plants from completely taking over the garden by planting in half-barrels or containers. Create attractive design by planting different mint variety in each container, such as orange, ginger, peppermint, spearmint, and chocolate mint. Our mint went crazy and took over the blackberries and the strawberries.

I repurpose tomato cages in the winter to hold up pea plants in my wine barrel garden. See how tall and happy they are?
